THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT  — She’s right though. Society can’t have it both ways. If the DMV says she’s not a female, she can’t be arrested for going topless.

Andrea Jones, a transgender woman from Tennessee says she went topless after the Morristown, TN Drivers License Office refused to change her sex to female from male on her drivers license. She was arrested after the incident.

Andrea Jones: “If I was a male, I had the right to, when I stepped out the door, take off my shirt. It’s not right for the state to ask me to be both male and female. A choice needs to be made. They cannot hold me to both standards.”

  1. Unless that state has a law banning men from being topless, it seems to me that they do not have a legal leg to stand on.

  2. Like she said, they cant have it both ways.
